GigOptix, Inc. announced the inception of the Global Customer Operations Organization (GCO), under the leadership of Dr. Raluca Dinu, Executive Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing. This change in organization structure is aimed at establishing complete alignment of the company's operations with the customers requirements, by integrating into one organization the driving of a strategic roadmap, tactical and product marketing, engineering applications, and global sales. The company announced appointment of two new Marketing Directors: Dr. Koichi Murata as Director of the GigOptix Telecom Marketing, and Mr. Anthony Jackson as Director of Wireless and RF Product Marketing. Dr. Koichi Murata is a seasoned veteran of the optical communications industry. Previously, Dr. Murata worked for Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation (NTT) Laboratories for 26 years. His activity revolved around development of high-speed mixed-signal ICs using III-V semiconductor technologies for long-haul large-capacity optical transmission systems. As senior manager of High-Speed Devices and Technology Laboratory, and Metro-Access Network Division, Dr. Murata managed the development and commercialization of the optical components and modules for 100Gbps/400Gbps digital coherent systems, InP-based Mach-Zehender Modulator, InGaAs/InP Avalanche Photodiodes, next-generation network control LSI for the convergence of mobile and access network, and optical sab-assemblies for 100GbE and 400GbE. Dr. Murata has 96 individual patents, and has published more than 160 papers in professional journals and international conference publications. Mr. Jackson has a long tenure at the wireless industry. He joined GigOptix from TriQuint/Qorvo where he lead the marketing RF product line, with emphasis on LNAs and SAW Filters used in mobile handsets, tablets, and other wireless devices. Prior to Qorvo, Mr. Jackson led the development and delivery of 2.5Gbps through 3Gbps wireless and RF contracts at AC Wireless.

CPqD Opens First Factory in the Southern Hemisphere for Production of Advanced Photonic Chipsets in Joint Venture with GigOptix

CPqD opened the first factory in the Southern Hemisphere for production of advanced photonic chipsets in a JV with GigOptix. Called BrPhotonics, the plant is based in the Campinas tech hub, in São Paulo state, adjacent to CPqD's own facilities, occupying 400m2 of labs. Photonics and microelectronic chipsets are considered critical elements for high-speed optical communication systems, particularly those above 100Gbps. Their main application is in the telecommunications networks niche, targeting companies such as Ericsson, Huawei, Ciena and others. CPqD transferred its silicon photonics (SiPh) technology and its expertise in optical encapsulation to BrPhotonics, in addition to resources and testing capabilities. GigOptix, in turn, provided the thin film polymer on silicon (TFPS) technology and brought a production line to Brazil that was established in Bothell in the US. GigOptix is also working as sales representative and distributor for BrPhotonics in the global market. The JV will serve not only the domestic market, but also Latin America and the global market. BrPhotonics plans to be producing 250 chipsets per month by March, gradually upping this figure to 12,000 chipsets per year. The cost of production of each chipset ranges from USD 2,000 to USD 5,000.

GigOptix Seeks Acquisitions

GigOptix, Inc. (AMEX:GIG) is looking for acquisitions. GigOptix filed a follow-on equity offering. GigOptix expects to use the net proceeds from the offering of the shares which it is selling for potential acquisitions for strategic growth, including the acquisition of critical technologies and scalable businesses.
